%%* In ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'', if players pair up [[VideoGame/LegendOfTheValkyrie Valkyrie]] with [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Chun-Li]] and [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Morrigan]], then Morrigan invokes this trope with Valkyrie being "the child", Morrigan being the "seductress" and Chun-Li being "the wife". Except with a twist:

to:

* ''Literature/HisFamily'': Roger's daughters. Edith fits the "wife" face exactly, nurturing and motherly and dedicated to her children to the exclusion of everything else. Laura is definitely the "seductress", as she is sexy, she dresses sexy, she likes to party, and she ReallyGetsAround. Deborah isn't quite the "innocent", as she is a hard-working social activist, but she is somewhat virginal and puritanical.

* In ''KnotsLanding'', the three main women fill these roles perfectly: Karen is The Wife, the wiser, calmer aspect. Abby is The Seductress -- sexually experienced and independent. Val is The "Child" (although she's the same age as the other women) and is innocent, perhaps to the point of naïveté.
* Although all the same age the girls on [[{{FriEnds}} Friends]] can be viewed this way, with flirty and sophisticated [[{{MsFanservice}} Rachel]] as the seductress, innocent and quirky [[{{CloudCuckooLander}} Phoebe]] as the child and capable, responsible [[{{HappilyMarried}} Monica]] as the wife.

* The three female leads of ''MadMen'': Joan is the seductress, completely capable of using her sexuality to get what she wants. At first glance, Betty (StepfordSmiler housewife) would be the Wife and Peggy (PluckyOfficeGirl) would be the child, but before long, childishness establishes itself as one of Betty's crucial qualities if not her FatalFlaw, and Peggy displays a determination to leave behind the role of wide-eyed little girl and becomes a capable woman and Don's equal in a way Betty (his actual wife) never was.
* The three ladies of ''TheGoldenGirls'' minus Sophia. Rose was the child (sweet and naive), Dorothy was the wife (calm and sensible) and Blanche was the seductress (sexy and fiery.)

* In ''LiveActionTV/SavedByTheBell'' the three female leads qualify. Kelly is the Child; she's portrayed as kind to everyone and often too naive for her own good. Jessie is the Wife; she's the student council president and the most mature of the SixStudentClique. Lisa is the Seductress; as she herself puts it "my hobbies include [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs dating, guys and dating guys]]".

* DavidCopperfield gives us the three ladies whom David loved through his life. His FirstLove is Little Emily, the Seductress (aware of her good looks, may or may have not been a prostitute and her best friend Martha ''is'' one, [[spoiler: ends up running away with HandsomeDevil Steerforth [[BreakTheCutie and is massively broken]] for that]]); his SecondLove Dora is The Child (spoiled, sweet, naive, even nicknamed 'his child wife' [[spoiler: and what drew David to her ''may'' have been his MommyIssues since she was similar to his also very child-like mother Clara]]; and finally, his third love and second wife Agnes is the Wife (reliable, the "angel of the house", softspoken, a ProperLady)

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'':
** Asuka is the wife. She calmed Shinji down and her presence kept him emotionally stable.
** Rei is the child. She had trouble controlling her emotions and her jealousy and she got irrationally angry and petty when she didn't get her way.
** Misato is the seductress. She is sultry, sensual and loves teasing.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/FairyTail'': Mirajane is the mother, Wendy is the child, Lucy is the seductress, and Erza is pretty much all three at once.

All three character types are considered to be very feminine -- [[LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine with Child representing Light Feminine, Seductress representing Dark Feminine]] and Wife being in the middle, just like the movie that the trope gets its title from. Instead of BeautyBrainsAndBrawn it's (pretty) Beauty, (pleasant) Beauty, and (provocative) Beauty; or, alternatively, cute, beautiful, and sexy. Instead of [[TownGirls butch, femme, and neither]] it's (girly) femme, (lady-like) femme, and (overtly sexy) femme.

*** Relm is the child/perky type - [[BadassGrandpa Strago]] didn't even want her to be involved in any combat at first because of this. She's perky and optimistic.
